The things you can see only when you slow down


I recently bought a book called “The things you can see only when you slow down” by Haemin Sunim. It’s a collection of quotes and ideas written by a Zen Buddhist teacher and writer from South Korea. The book also has artwork by Youngcheol Lee which really complements the writing. The book has chapters on rest, mindfulness, passion, relationships, love, life, the future and spirituality. It’s well worth a look if you are looking for a bit of inspiration in terms of how to calm a busy mind!

Sometimes life throws us a curveball for no reason that we can fathom.

But do not despair.

We are not alone. We can persevere.

This too shall pass, like the heat of summer.

Haemin Sunim
